This is what God gave me today in His word:
May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners! May the LORD fulfill all your petitions! Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright. O LORD, save the king! May he answer us when we call. (Psalms 20:5-9)
Now, this passage actually teaches several things. However, there is one main point which is applicable to our lives today: The Gospel, and the Gospel alone, should produce praise and worship in us. See, some people trust, and even worship to a certain extent, money and other physical belongings. Some even trust in the modern form of the chariot, cars. However, the Christian should understand that, while money and cars and belongings are all very useful and often necessary, the Gospel is the only thing that should cause us to be worshipful.
God’s salvation for us – Jesus’ death and Resurrection, should cause us to shout for joy!-At the least mentally, if not physically, depending upon the situation.-It should cause us to see that we have been made pure and holy in God’s sight. Thus, we can be confident when we call to God that, if what we ask is according to His will for our lives, He will indeed answer us.
